Here’s my stake in the ground: I believe women should always work in some flexible way—at every age and life stage—for long-term financial security and the ability to fund all of life’s you never knows.

Every year out of the workforce women forfeit up 4X their salary. But it doesn’t take a C-Suite job or a six-figure salary to retire comfortably. Women can “lean in-between” and generate more than $500,000 in savings from even moderate part-time compensation over 20 years.

I’m one of very few talking about flexible work as the answer to keeping women (who have two big caregiving roles—children and aging parents) consistently in the workforce.
